SOHS Presents Tales From the Collections: Artists of the Rogue Valley

Tales From the Collections: Artists of the Rogue Valley

Dorland Robinson

Everyone knows that Peter Britt was a photographer, but did you know that he was also a painter? Learn about the early artists, and also contemporary artists of the Rogue Valley at the next Tales from the Collection event on Saturday, September 26 from 10a-noon at 106 N. Central in Medford.

The Rogue Valley has a long history showcasing local artistic talent. SOHS has the paintings that Britt created from photographs, Dorland Robinson’s moody, subtle works, and artifacts from Eugene Bennett’s studio. Historian Dawna Curler, Archivist Pat Harper and local artists Bruce Bayard and Ann DiSalvo will talk about art created in the 1800s through the 2000s at the next Tales event and also explain how the Rogue Galley and Art Center has played such an important role in the region.

The Library and Archives at the SOHS History Center will be open for free research from noon-2p following the Tales event.
